Pussy Cats Starring Walkmen, usually described as just Pussy Cats, is a covers album by Walkmen, launched in 2006. By '74 Nilsson was cruising on success of hits like 'Everybody's Talkin' and 'Without You', and Lennon had momentarily divided from Yoko Ono, moved to LA and begun on his notoriously drug and booze-driven 'shed weekend'.

Pussy Cats have always enjoyed hefty rotation on the excursion bus of New York band Walkmen, formed in 2000 out of ashes of Jonathan Fire * Eater, band that influenced Strokes, amongst others. Prior to the recording of Pussy Cats and Walkmen's 'official' 3rd album, Hundred Miles Off, Walter Martin swapped band functions with original bass gamer Pete Bauer. Our friend Greg Talenfeld, that had done some recording for our old band, rested down with us and informed us the least pricey way to get an excellent analogue recording workshop going-which mics we need to obtain, what outboardgear and what video cassette recorder and board. The album is a song-for-song cover of the 1974 Harry Nilsson album Pussy Cats, which was produced by John Lennon. The choice to cover the Pussy Cats' album, which is the band's much-loved, started as a joke that evolved right into a full-fledged album released just 5 months after their previous record, Hundred Miles Off. The album additionally functioned as the last job for the band's studio, Marcata Recording. Marcata, which band participants Matt Barrick, Paul Maroon and Walter Martin constructed in 1999, was located in a building had by Columbia University, which took building back in 2006. The making of the album, which took about 10 days, was shot by Norman Rockwell Coady and video was made right into a documentary in Loving Recognition, included on the album's going along with DVD.

The story behind Nilsson's original is practically like the record: Nilsson was friendly with all the Beatles, yet was far closer to John Lennon than the rest. Nilsson was Lennon's major drinking friend throughout ex-Beatle's Lost Weekend period in LA, time when Lennon was separated from Yoko Ono and the Pussy Cats pertained to fruition.

There's large factor why Walkmen is an excellent fit for not just Nilsson, but for this album in particular, and it's not simply that Hamilton Leithauser has a skill for sounding like his throat is scorched. Funnier that the only track below that appears like the band themselves isn't also sung by Leithauser, however by Mazarin frontman Quentin Stoltzfus. They were within their bounds to record these songs nonetheless they desired, not just exactly how Nilsson did.
